XTRA! World of Tanks Memorial Weekend Event

Company: Wargaming.net
Product: World of Tanks

While the upcoming weekend might not hold much importance for those outside of the United States, in the U.S., this weekend is Memorial Day Weekend, a time we set aside to remember those who have served in our military. Also, as it turns out, it's evidently a great time to hold annual sales on anything from computers to mattresses to pet supplies. However, this Memorial Day Weekend, World of Tanks is helping to keep the spirit of the holiday, with their Memorial Day Weekend event.
